Vicarious E3 Prijs

Charlene is going to be a major factor in the 2010 FGBC - RRR FGD Challenge. That is what the new cx bike is all about. But today she showed that she can contribute on the vicarious racing front too. Placing three riders in the top 5 (Cancellara, Pozzato, and Boom), she picked up 825 points today and scored a big win. That's the second highest winning score so far. And the highest for a non-monument race, where the point totals are a little less. She moves up all the way from 18th place to 5th overall. King Andy was second today, with 760 points. He's sitting right behind Charlene in the overall race. And Miriam had 640 points to round out the podium.

The 2009 Champion laid his second consecutive goose egg. Fellow RRR'ers Larry and Chris D sucked again as well, as did the BCC duo of Ali and Chris O. Ali has slipped back into the cellar, giving Vic another reprieve.

Jonny B is still leading. But Dallas has moved into second. He sits just 60 points off the pace. The Fraggle drops down to third. And Charlie is holding steady in fourth place. He and Dallas have not been outside of the top five since we began on Feb. 27.

Full results and standings here.

Note that after six races, we have had six different winners: Dallas, Jay, Chris D, Jonny B, Kevin, and Charlene. Too bad the Secretary didn't enter a team. After whining about the relative rigidity of the standings in the cx pool, he is missing out on the opportunity to experience the wild variation that the FGBC Spring Classics Pool has to offer.

We're back at it tomorrow with Gent-Wevelgem. Check back in the morning for live video options.
